My name is Charissa Whaley, LCSW and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families and I specialize in working with children and the family system. I utilize an integrated approach to treat issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship conflict/ distress, interpersonal problems, and family dynamics. I incorporate Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) strategies, behavioral interventions, Positive Parenting Program (Triple P), attachment focused interventions, Dialectial Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) in my practice.
In addition to private practice, I currently work at Palomar Hospital as a behavioral health clinician. My past experience has been providing counseling in the school systems, county mental health, foster care system, and with care management at Optum.
My standard fees:
$100- initial intake
$80- 50 min session
I do not take insurance at this time. I offer reduced rates and a sliding fee scale on a case by case basis.
Right now I am available in the evenings between 4:30pm-8pm. I can be reached at 760-248-8458 and [email protected]
I look forward to meeting you soon!
